Hello, I'm trying to 'melt' 2 discs together. I've already connected them and removed segments using the Polygon Pen tool, but I don't seem to be able to get rid of the 2 overlapping lines in the middle:
I've tried 'melt' and even a plugin called magic-merge, but it has no affect.
I started to delete the lines, but it still sees them as 2 separate polygons:
Create two spline circles spread apart as you have those disc objects.
Place both of the circles as children of a Spline Mask object.
Set the Spline Mask's mode to "union" and the Axis to mach the axis the circles sit on.
For autogenerated triangles you can just check "Create Cap" on the Spline Mask
Place the Spline Mask as a child of and Extrude Generator Object, set the Movement to 0,0,0 on the "Object" tab and turn on just the start Cap on the "Caps" tab.
This method is completely parametric (non-destructive) so you can move the circles further apart or closer without having to adjust a single point or merge anything manually.
